Weight loss, Hiking in 2018 vs hiking in 2020 :

Weight loss, Hiking in 2018 vs hiking in 2020
Um... hang on a minute while I go cry. 😭
I remember the 2018 hike. I remember being super embarrassed & having to ask my friends several times if we could stop to take a break. I remember them being way ahead of me and looking back asking “you okay?”. I remember when my friend grabbed the camera and said “smile” & I made sure my camelback was covering my stomach. I remember being exhausted, defeated and having absolutely no fun.

Today’s hike was the complete opposite! I had the energy & strength to make it all the way to the top without taking any “breaks”. Nobody looked back at me to make sure I was okay & to check how far behind them I was. I encouraged picture taking and I proudly posed with a huge smile! Today was exciting, beautiful & FUN!

It’s crazy how weight loss doesn’t only change the way you look but it completely changes your ability to do difficult things as well as your confidence to do them! Needless to say, I was SUPER FREAKING PROUD of myself today, especially after comparing these two pictures.
Listen: if you are in the midst of your weight loss journey, don’t give up! I promise you that it is totally worth it. You deserve a body and life that you are proud of! ♥️
